Windy and I returned home a few days ago.
Max lost his mind when I walked in the door; however, he was less than thrilled to see his sister.
Windy dominates Max over places. Max dominates her over food. Windy has learned not to disturb him while he is eating. If Windy is in a place Max wants to be, he doesn’t challenge her for it.
Jake is the moderator. He incites nothing. He ignores disagreements. He is a friend to both. However, if he can be sneaky with toys or treats – he takes full advantage of the situation. Windy and Max never challenge him. Somehow he is the alpha dog with the velvet paw.
